King Alfred’s is a friendly, ambitious and vibrant school packed full of energy, opportunity and choice. Our mission statement is “Opportunity for all”, this is something we believe in passionately and seek to deliver for our students each and every day. We are committed to helping each and every one of our students find what makes them successful in life. Great teaching and learning across the school is supported by our culture of professional development and collaboration.  Each student deserves the very best experience to enable them to achieve their ambitions.  Our pastoral care provides security and confidence, supporting our students to be happy and to thrive.   

Our ethos of ‘Opportunity for all’ applies to King Alfred’s staff as well as our students. Colleagues at King Alfred’s can be proud to be part of something special, making a real difference to the lives and life chances of our students. It is a rewarding place to work as part of a mutually supportive team where everyone matters and makes a difference. Our thoughtful approach to wellbeing means that staff have the support and challenge to succeed and advance. Our staff well-being charter sets out the high expectations that we have for ourselves in terms of how we support colleagues. Our aim is to be an employer of choice and somewhere that colleagues can be happy, supported and develop their career.

Personal, professional and career development is fundamental to being part of King Alfred’s. Our induction programme for all new colleagues is carefully planned to give colleagues the practical strategies, advice and guidance they need to support a successful start. Continuous professional development is at the heart of our work at school. Our culture of high quality professional development and reflection, supported by practical strategies and collaboration across teams, is enhanced by access to a wide range of training and resources to suit your professional progress and growth in the classroom. King Alfred’s staff all have access to the National College, and many colleagues are pursuing National Professional Qualifications and delivering training for a range of organisations.
